Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.
Twenty-eight standard benchmark tests are available in six test suites plus there are seven advanced testing windows for custom benchmarking.
Standard test suites
CPU tests Mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, 3DNow! instructions and more
2D graphics tests Drawing lines, bitmaps, fonts, text, and GUI elements
3D graphics tests Simple to complex DirectX 3D graphics and animations
Disk tests Reading, writing and seeking within disk files
Memory tests Allocating and accessing memory speed and efficiency
CD / DVD test Test the speed of your CD or DVD drive
Changes in version 7.0 build 1003:
Fixed a possible crash in the Medium/Complex 3D test.
Fixed an error in reporting the transfer speed in the advanced network test.
Changes in version 7.0 build 1002:
Fixed an error when running licensed from USB Drive.
Changes in version 7.0 build 1001:
Fixed crash on some systems when opening "print" menu option.
Fixed baselines info not displaying when selecting for display from the web download interface.
Fixed OS lacking 32/64-bit info in baseline search.
Fixed problem with installing a licensed copy of PT to a USB drive.
Changes in version 7.0 build 1000:
New DirectX 10 3D Test (Requires Windows Vista and a DirectX 10 compatible video card)
Large improvements to the user interface, including near completely reworked main window.
Can now view the system information from multiple baselines simultaneously.
streamlined baseline selection dialogue
Increased the default size of the main window to go along with the graphical improvements.
Improved baseline search functionality.
Removed almost all restrictions in the trial version.
Increased the amount of system information gathered and displayed.
Improved copy options for quickly getting system information from PT to the clipboard.
/p option added to use the application directory instead of the user directory
Added EXPORTBASELINE script option to export .pt file
Overhauled most of the 2D test suite. Complex Vector tests and Image filtering tests now included.
Changed fonts and text test to have text which is more representative of a real document.
Increased intensity of "Windows Interface" test.
Increased the resolution at which 2d and 3d graphics tests are run to place more load on the video card.
Prime numbers test optimised.
String sorting test intensified to use more memory.
Image rotation test was moved from the CPU suite and added as part of the image filters in the 2D suite to show what is happening.
Added CPU Physics simulation test
Added Visualised Physics Test to advanced test suite. This is a customizable 3D representation of what the new physics CPU test is doing.
Increased unchached memory test from 4MB to 64MB as many CPU's have 4MB caches now.
Updated image export functionality.
Install to USB drive menu function.
Changed Passmark Rating calculation to limit the effect of a single extremely fast system component.
